5. MARCELA VALLADOLID
Show: Relatos con Sabor, Mexican Made Easy
Complex says: Mexican Made Easy? Perhaps she misunderstood our meaning when we asked how easily we could make it with her.
4. KATIE LEE
Show: Top Chef, George Hirsch: Living It UP!
Complex says: This former host and food critic married Billy Joel when she was 23 and he was 55 (they divorced five years later). As somewhat disgusted young guys who nonetheless hope to one day date women who are 30-plus years younger than us, we guess this means she has great taste?
3. GIADA DE LAURENTIIS
Show: Everyday Italian, Behind the Bash, Giada at Home, Giada's Weekend Getaways, Giada in Paradise, Today
Complex says: This world-renowned Italian-American chef always has two burners on. Her chest, that is. Mamma mia!
2. SARA LA FOUNTAIN
Shows: Avec Sara, Perfect Day, A Perfect Day in Sara's Kitchen (web)
Complex says: Born in California, this French and Finnish-American dime is one of the very few things the U.S. has lost to Finland. We would gladly lose ice hockey games eternally to get her back.
1. PADMA LAKSHMI
Show: Top Chef
Complex says: The gorgeous Indian model with the seven-inch scar on her right arm is, without question, the tastiest dish that has ever been served on Bravo's popular cooking competition for chefs. We won't mention that she has daddy issues and was (from 2004-2007) married to old-ass writer Salman Rushdie, as it upsets our stomachs.
